weekly astrology forecast | september 5 to September 11, 2022 - mercury stations retro, full moon in pisces, flashing green lights and our love and money gets practical


Mercury stations retrograde this week, and although this season's Mercury retrograde should be better than most and will have us panning for old gold, it is still the time to BACK UP OUR FILES, double check our emails, etc. 


The Sun makes multiple smooth moves with the future/change, affirming our practical actions NOW will pay off LATER. We also have a BIG Full Moon in magical Pisces and Venus leaving fun-loving Leo and getting down to the practical nuts and bolts of life in Virgo. That sounds about right.

Let's unpack the week!


MONDAY - Venus enters Virgo

TUESDAY - Pallas enters Cancer

WEDNESDAY - Sun trines North Node, Sun inconjuncts Chiron

FRIDAY - Mercury stations retrograde

SATURDAY - Full Moon in Pisces

SUNDAY - Sun trines Uranus

On MONDAY - our Virgo house receives its annual visit from lovely Venus. Virgo Suns and Ascendants get more attractive - both easier on the eye and able to attract what they want. Our natal Virgo houses get more attractive, too!

Venus rules our love, money, self-esteem, values, relationships, women, beauty, our resources, attracting what we want - all areas are subjected to Virgo's keen focus and attention to detail now. We will be analyzing what we want and what we have. We will be analyzing our relationships. With Venus in service-oriented Virgo - LOVE IS A VERB.

The problems will stand out. We won't be able to miss them. And since what we focus on grows, sometimes things get worse before they get better during this transit. Still, this is excellent energy to fix what needs fixing and accept (or eliminate) what just isn't fixable. Venus in Virgo is about loving the details of something, enjoying the work, appreciating the craftsmanship and complexity of something or someone or some situation as well as the problems, Venus in Virgo can't miss those, and choosing not to dwell on them. We might even find while Venus is in Virgo we are attracted to problems. 

This is also the day the Capricorn Moon trines the Virgo Sun at 13 degrees. Excellent energy for fixing problems and making improvements and provides structure and stability for Venus in Virgo's transit. The Moon in Cappy is PRACTICAL and ambitious, can pull us away from the sometimes distracting nit-picky details and problems and focus us in on what we need to do. Good energy for getting things done.


Venus will be in Virgo until September 29th, keep in mind, in Virgo she is answering to Mercury, who will be retrograde - starting Friday - for most of this time. Old relationships, women from the past, love from the past, money from the past will all be in play.

On TUESDAY - Pallas enters Cancer. Our strategic warrior Goddess comes home to work with old family patterns and emerging home/family/mother/real estate issues. Pallas will retrograde here, so will be in Cancer until May 2023. As she interacts with the planets and points through transit and through contact with our natal and progressed charts, we will be figuring out our maternal inheritance, how we fit into our existing family structures, how we are repeating family patterns, what we need to feel safe. It is almost like Pallas is passed a baton from Black Moon Lilith for us to continue this relay race around home/family/safety/security/nurturing - this is a long transit and will be extremely powerful. It will take us through the late 2022/early 2023 major collective changes. Since how something begins is very important, we note she starts this transit with a sober Cappy Moon, the Sun in practical Virgo and Saturn (retrograde in Aquarius and ruling the Moon) opposing Ceres at 20 degrees Leo. This feels like a difficult ending. A life cycle concluding. Our need for attention/appreciation may not be externally met. We have to love ourselves.

On WEDNESDAY, the Virgo Sun, at 15 degrees Virgo will inconjunct Chiron and trine the North Node in Taurus.

The inconjunct is kind of a rock and a hard place. Inconjunct signs (like those right next to each other) do not blend easily. This is Aries/Virgo. Cardinal fire and mutable earth. Aries has no patience for Virgo's tedious details and to Virgo, Aries can appear selfish/rude. Maybe there is a conflict here between autonomy and service. There won't be a tidy solution, but we can look to the Sun's powerful trine to the North Node in Taurus, for a way through. 

With the Sun trining the North Node pay attention to what comes to your attention now/who you meet, etc - your future is calling - if someone invites you to go somewhere, this would be the time to GO.


With the Sun in service and detail oriented Virgo - shining in a practical way, being of service, taking care of the details, fixing, but not fixating on problems, our DAILY HABITS align us with the future. We won't have to push too hard/bang our head against the wall - something should fall into place now.


On THURSDAY - the Moon is void from 8:34AM EDT for the rest of the day. Keep this in mind. With the Moon not in contact with any other planet/point this would probably not be the best time to start/launch something we want 'something to come of'. Situations today are subject to revisions, although everything is right now with Mars in Gemini going to go retrograde next month! A good day to do routine tasks/relax.

On FRIDAY - Mercury stations retrograde at 8 degrees Libra. All the usual Mercury retrograde admonishments apply. We will be going back over our relationships, our need for balance and fairness, our Libra house themes. We will pull this re-look, re-do, re-evaluation back into Virgo where we can make things better/more stable. Then we will move ahead when Mercury stations direct on October 2nd, and do it all over again in an improved way. 


This Mercury retrograde includes multiple opportunities to pan for 'old gold' and we will talk about this in its own post!

On SATURDAY - we have a BIG Full Moon at 17 degrees Pisces. This will have its own post, too. 


In magical Pisces, this will be a big opportunity for emotional release and healing, but also looks confusing/illusory with the Mercury station at almost the same time. One thing for sure here is our intuition will be HEIGHTENED. We will be feeling our way through this one, since our mind is taking a siesta!

On SUNDAY, after his smooth connection with the North Node, the Sun in Virgo makes another smooth connection - this time with change-maker Uranus. So, as we move toward the future, we are more accepting of change/change comes more EASILY.

Uranus in Taurus is the overhaul of finances, security, habits and values. Since May 2018 we have ALL had our personal and collective REVERSALS OF FORTUNE (or they are still to come, Uranus is in Taurus until 2025). 


With today's trine to the Virgo Sun, liberation from old habits/criticism/unproductive daily habits can happen easily. Change is practical. Happens in its own time. The unusual can be welcomed in without so much chaos. Here is where small changes create big results. 

I hope something here is helpful. I never got back here after last week's weekly post, but this week I will be back with the Full Moon and Mercury retrograde posts. Blogging is a bit challenging right now due to some family commitments and other projects.

With the solar energy in a smooth flow with the future/change - this week looks very FUTURE FOCUSED. In a 'things falling into place' not us beating our head against closed doors, kind of way. Something RIPENS. 


The Cappy Moon early in the week, ends with a connection to Pluto and is followed by an Aquarius Moon that ends with a connection to Saturn. Then the late week Pisces Moon - where the Moon will oppose the Sun - will end with a sextile to Pluto, so lots of good endings if we aren't holding on too tightly. Other than Thursday's almost all-day Void Moon, there are multiple opportunities to start and move ahead.

Back with a look at Mercury retrograde.
